Upon reading this thread I realized that I can do just about any simple skill, and even some complex ones. I then got to wondering how many people out there are like me. Is it normal to know this much stuff? Or am I in some sort of small minority of people that can do anything, like the Pretender?
A short list of things I can do/skills I have is:
cooking and other domestic skills (I can’t sew, knit, or do anything like that, though.)
wilderness survival skills (I’ve never started a fire w/o at least flint + steel, but I do know how to do it, in theory)
basic first aid (I can even do a tracheotemy if I really needed to.)
basic automotive maintanance (change a tire and some oil, no prob.)
home repairs and constuction (I can practically build a house)
simple electrical skills (I can even wire the house.)
landscaping (I’ll also give it a garden and retaining wall)
creative skills (I’m musically inclined, and do theatre. I can’t draw, though, despite actually taking several drawing classes all my work looks like a five-year old drew it)
I know a good deal about science and a fair amount of math (average knowledge of history and other social sciences)
I’m also very knowledgable in the realm of layout and editing
I can swim and even have basic boating knowledge and skills
l33t computor skillz (i can r0x joo4 b0x)
This is but a partial list, but as you can see I am well versed in many areas. I challege you to find something I can’t do! Likeways, I ask my fellow jack-of-all-trades to rise forth and claim our titles as the world’s most versatile people!
